Went to a Labor Day gathering this afternoon. Hostess is from Madison. She insists brats are a Labor Day tradition in WI. Says she boils the fat out, simmers them in beer and onions, and they throws them on the Q. Very good.

The only problem is they didn't serve beer with the brats.

What kind of tradition is that?

It has nothing to do with Labor Day; they serve brats for every occasion.

Wisconsin was pretty Teutonic. I think that's where it came from.

Get brats, cut up onions, pour beer into pot with onions. Boil brats in beer and onions then grill until browned on the grill. Delicious.

I actually grill first then simmer in oinion's and beer, if you boil them first you don't as good sear marks.

As far as being liberal Madison makes todays berkely look conservative.
